  • Eligibility requirement:
  • Applications to the Edward James Foundation Bursary Fund can be made by anyone who has accepted a place to study at West Dean and who can demonstrate a clear financial need. Preference will be given to students who show that they are pursuing all possible avenues for raising the funds they will need, including applying to other grant-making trusts, part time / holiday work, loans and so on. Preference will also be shown to students that the Grants Committee believes have the potential to make a long-lasting contribution to their chosen field. Grants are given based on individual need. Most commonly, grants are under £5,000. Applicants need to demonstrate that they can finance any accommodation and remaining tuition fees if they are offered a bursary. The Grants Committee cannot consider an application if this information is not provided. All bursary-funded students will be expected to agree to terms and conditions*. These include the student’s commitment to support recruitment to the College by acting as an advocate during the time they are at West Dean, and for two years afterwards e.g. by attending a small number of promotional events such as a talk to potential new students (costs of these activities will be covered by the College). Bursary applications are considered four times a year by the Foundation’s Grants Committee.
